Autodesk Vault 2008 supports the new DWG TrueConnect functionality of Inventor 2008. Companies often Vault their AutoCAD and Inventor data together. Now you can search and sort these files, even though they have the same file extension. In Vault Explorer, you use Advanced Search to find Inventor DWGs amongst all the DWGs in your Vault. This search can then be saved to call on later.
To begin, from the Tools pull down, select Advanced Find.
There are two criteria youll need to search across. First, from the Property pull down list select File Classification. The Condition = is. And the Vault = Design Document. Click the Add button to place this rule in the list.
The Second Property to choose is File Name. Set the Condition = contains. Set the Vault = dwg. Add this to the criteria list.
Click the Find Now button to begin the search. The results are listed below. We suggest saving this a search for future use to Vault users. As other Inventor DWGs are added to the Vault, the list will dynamically update with those DWGs.
